Another St. John's Priest Accused Of Abuse

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A St. John's priest accused of sexual abuse allegedly told his victim it was required as a part of the confirmation process.

On Monday, a new lawsuit was filed against Father Michael Bik and St. John's Abbey.

Prosecutors say Bik abused a boy at St. John's Prep after the school learned he sexually abused two students in the 1970s, when he was a teacher at St. Stephens in Anoka.

They say Bik admitted to the abuse in 1998 and St. John's allowed him to keep teaching.

Lawyers are asking any other victims to come forward before the Child Victims Act window legislation expires on May 25.
